Palladium Relaunches The Original Pallabrousse Boot

Pallabrousse Legion,  Palladium bootReturning in SS21 to the boot where it all started, Palladium introduces its most meticulously crafted replica of its first ever style, Pallabrousse. Designed specifically for the arid and unforgiving terrains tackled by the French Foreign Legion, upon its launch in 1947, the Pallabrousse redefined what it meant to be a function-first utility boot.

The new SS21 style, named Pallabrousse Legion, is the closest facsimile to Palladium’s original boot to date. Inspired by the brand’s military heritage, it reworks the classic style in an 8oz waxed canvas to deliver durability. The hi-top top style features an organic CVS canvas upper and a dual rubber sole with matching rubber toe cap. The moulded rubber tread incorporates spaced lugs that form even ‘bridges’ to distribute weight for maximum comfort in the most uneven of terrains alongside two wider bars that prevent arch collapse while delivering additional support. The structure of the boot helps eliminate the causes of foot fatigue to make long walks and extensive periods of standing easier.

The new Pallabrousse Legion is available in a tonal colour palette referencing the brand’s military heritage, each shade a different representation of terrain inspired by the environments the original legionnaires traversed.

All styles are available to purchase at www.palladiumboots.com and select global stockists.

#OOTD 58 - Lumber GEEK 2/4

The Chic Geek woodman lumberjack style ootdNever one to be shy about getting his chopper out, TheChicGeek is armed and dangerous in this lumberjack inspired OOTD. 

Those towering pines don’t stand a chance with TheChicGeek in his classic black and red buffalo check. Legend has it this distinctive Scottish pattern, known for centuries as Rob Roy, was dubbed ‘Buffalo Check Plaid’ by American outdoor specialist Woolrich (circa 1850) in honour of the small herd of buffalo the designer owned in central Pennsylvania.
